Watch: Heart warming ovation for Rob Burrow at Headingley

Rob Burrow was a legend on the rugby league field but he has become an even bigger legend off the field.

The former scrum-half has been battling Motor Neurone Disease since his diagnosis in December 2019 and has done so courageously.

He returned to the rugby league field in 2020 for one last time in a testimonial for him and Jamie Jones-Buchanan in front of sell out crowd.

Burrow has inspired so many fundraisers since by Kevin Sinfield, other famous people but also the ‘ordinary people’ and not just Leeds fans.

The halfback has the support of the entire rugby league community but also far beyond that.

Burrow and his family have been heroes of the MND community with millions raised in his name.

Tonight’s game is devoted to Burrow and the MND community with so much being done around the ground to raise money and awareness for MND.

Burrow’s daughter’s Macy and Maya led a spectacular dance with 777 children.

Burrow himself is in attendance and received a huge ovation from Leeds but also Huddersfield fans here tonight.
